ManageEngine AssetExplorer

The purchase order module can be very useful if you put a process in place. It is miles ahead of using a spreadsheet or something simple to do purchase orders and track spending.It can be good to keep track of equipment and software you have in house. However it is imperative you have dedicated staff and processes in place to maximize the utility of the software else it can become a white elephant if not implemented properly as it is a complex piece of software that does many things.

The number one use we have for it is in our periodic security reviews - we routinely check the logs for any anomalies, and ADAudit Plus is the tool of choice for me and for my team to get the ball rolling. We can check the dashboards for any out of the ordinary events, dig deeper into the actual log behaviors of the machines and users we manage, and then report the findings into CSV or XLSX format for further analysis or presentation.

Pros

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • The asset discovery across the network is great.
  • The periodic scanning and updating of asset status is super valuable.
  • The software discovery is outstanding. Receiving list of installed software helps greatly with license compliance.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • Set up custom searches
  • Simple auditing
  • Easy to use

Cons

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • You can fill the database and link it.
  • You can also add assets that aren't connected with the offline script, I would prefer to get a .exe but this import XML works well.
  • All is handled via the web, I would prefer a GUI standalone client.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • The UI is a bit clunky.
  • Installing SSL/TLS certs is less than optimal.

It is not a perfect solution. I don't believe it is the best software for some of the components it offers but I do like and appreciate what it does offer. It offers complexity and a range of features for a company to take advantage of if planned and implemented properly.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

Altiris is very daunting for users that have never worked with it. AssetExplorer was much easier to use for our team that had no experience with asset management.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

We use ADAudit Plus along with our Wazuh based SIEM, having removed AlienVault. The two together work in complementary ways, allowing us to not only audit, but also vet and analyze the results of our investigations and continuous quality improvement efforts. Logaholic was looked at as an alternative, but ultimately we felt it was too website-focused for our mostly-Windows server shop.

Return on Investment

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • Allow us to stay in compliance with licensing requirements. We usually have just the right amount of licenses +2 or 3. We don't have to guess on where we are.
  • Allows us identify older assets and proactively replace them. Reduces downtime.
  • No negative impacts I can think of.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • It has helped with Audit time and accuracy
  • More time to do other work
  • Peace of mind knowing you are compliant
